New Pelikan Edelstein Inks

Pelikan is coming out with a brand new line of high-end inks in fancy bottles called Edelstein (pronouced Ey-dell-shtine). This ink has been in development since summer of 2009, and is finally coming to market! I have just placed my order in for them and I'm expecting them later this month, though I have no definite ETA. I do not have any idea what the ink's characteristics are, or even the ink volume (it is rumored to be 50ml), though I can assure you that as soon as I get this ink in my hands, I will let you all know!


There are 7 colors with a gemstone theme: Ruby, Mandarin, Aventurin, Jade, Topaz, Sapphire, and Onyx.


There is a nice display (which I am supposed to be getting one!), though as of right now it's not available for purchase to the 'public'. I already asked ;)


The ink will list for $20 a bottle, putting it in the ranks with Caran d'Ache, Pilot's Iroshizuku, and the new Sailor Nano inks. Basically, nice inks in sweet bottles.


The new Pelikan Edelstein inks will be available soon at GouletPens.com as 2ml samples ($1.75) and full bottles ($19), as well as be on the Swab Shop (though it may take me some time to get them up there!). Email me if you're interested in pre-ordering.

  4. I'm very interested in how they differ from the regular Pelikan inks with respect to colors and composition.

  5. The background story? That's a good question! We're all being pretty well kept in the dark about these. I have heard the inks are supposed to be very extra-smooth writing, though. I'll update as I know more!

  7. ooh pretty.

    i looked around for more information, but not much is out there. i can even read german and went to the german Pelikan site (no mention at all on the US site) - no more details that you already gave us, brian, except i can confirm the 50ml volume.

    i guess we'll all just have to wait patiently.

  11. I'm wanting to try the Topaz and Aventurine. Although I'm not jazzed about the $19 price tag.

  12. Wow, these look seriously cool! I can't wait to try some out. I have to say though, the resemblance of the bottles to Caran d'Ache's is more than passing..

  13. Very pretty! Can't wait to see them in real life!

  14. Call me shallow, but I'll confess right now . . . even if I hate all the colors and every one of them gets a horrible review . . . I am going to order one of these just so I can look at the bottle.

    So long as the bottle is actually etched, as it appears to be, rather than sporting a clear stick-on label.
